Pando Nach ma Kunti Gainda Katha : A story of Rhinoceros in Pando Folk dance


(Garhwali folk Dance Songs, Uttarakhandi Folk Dance- Songs, Himalayan Folk dance-Songs)

                          Bhishm Kukreti
    There are tens of story sung at the time of Pando Folk Dance of Garhwal and Kumaun regions by Aujees.
There is one very peculiar story of Gainda or rhinoceros in Pando folk dance-song of Kumaun and Garhwal.
 Kunti, the mother of Pandavas sees a dream that instruct her to bring the skin of rhinoceros for the annual Shradh performance of her husband King Pandu .
Kunti orders five Pandavas to bring the skin of rhinoceros. Pnadavas become ready for bringing the skin of rhinoceros.
In the mean time, Draupadi the wife of all Pandvas also become ready with them to help them in case of
hunger, thirst, rough roads etc. However, Pandavas tell her that since, she does not have dress and ornaments as a queen should have she should not company her.
 When Pandvas come to Hariyali tal forest, they sees a Sitarami rhinoceros. The rhinoceros was a female rhinoceros and she tells them that her husband is in Gagal forest. Pandavas goes to Gagal forest and they kill the rhinoceros and bring skin of rhinoceros for the ritual of Shradh of thei father Pandu as instructed by mother Kunti.
  There is contrast in the story that queen Draupadi becomes ready to share the pain of her husbands Pnadvas  and the wife of rhinoceros Sitarami tells the secret of her husband’ whereabouts. Here, in the story, there is no mention that Pandavas threatened  Sitarami .
 The songs have various emotions woven into it. There is curiosity for audience whether Pandavas would be successful or not. The sacrifice of Draupadi and the deceptive nature of female rhinoceros bring different emotions.
  The folk song is proof that folk song creator were master of psychology besides being master of form of poetries.
